After five years of having Blue Ivy, world power couple, Beyonce and Jay Z are expecting another blessing. Yesterday, February 1st, Beyoncé announced to the world via Instagram that she is pregnant with twins.
“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters,” she wrote.
She shared the good news alongside a picture showing her cradling the baby bump. In less than 24 hours after sharing the photo, it has attracted over 7,432,757 likes, as at the time of this publication.
This figure has broken the records, making Beyonce’s baby bomb photo the most liked picture on Instagram, and beating the most likes gotten by the Instagram Queen herself, Selena Gomez.
24-year old Selena Gomez has been the most followed person on IG since June 2016, with over 103 million followers and the most likes on her picture amount to 6,320,576.
One of Lady B’s fans wrote, “there are 9 billion people on earth, this picture deserves more likes.” Apparently, out of her 93 million followers on IG, Beyonce has more active fans than Selena Gomez.
Meanwhile, friends, family, and fans of Beyonce all over the world are so excited about this development; expecting a twin and getting the most liked picture on social media.
Rihanna also shared the trending photo in excitement with the caption: “So excited about this news!!! Congratulations to you @Beyonce and my big brother Jay!!!”
Mother of the expecting mother, Tina Knowles also shared her happiness on being a grandmother to twins. “Wowi! I don’t have to keep the secret anymore. I am soooo happy, God is good. Twin blessings,” she wrote.
It seems like twins love celebrities or celebrities love twins. In a few months, Beyonce will be joining the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Zoe Saldana et. al. who have twins.
Twins are great and Beyonce is already getting trouble for the double, as social media users are making it a competition between lady B and her obvious rival, Kim Kardashian.
They are insinuating that Kim will may want to override Beyonce’s achievement by popping up pregnancy. However, they advise that the best way to go about it will not be by having twins, but having more, maybe say triplets or quadruplets would work.
Meanwhile, American singer K Michelle got dissed by a fan for mentioning she too might be getting pregnant soon. K Michelle shared Beyoncé’s pregnant photo on her page, “Yesss! The season on the multiples! I can wait to hit this doctor next month!!!!! Congrats. I know it’s an awesome feeling”.
A hater fan quickly reminded Miss Michelle that Beyonce is married and she is not, so having a child might be out-of-place for her.
Recall Beyonce’s first pregnancy and child delivery came with so much buzz and controversy, especially when every single patient in the hospital she gave birth was discharged and the surroundings shut down exclusively for her.
This time maybe, the delivery of Beyonce’s twins might require a full city being sent off on vacation in anticipation of her two lovelies.
